After months of denying the seriousness of the pandemic and making, Mr. Bolsonaro felt symptoms of Covid-19. More than 65,000 Brazilians have died of the virus.
President Jair Bolsonaro of Brazil has constantly spoken against social distancing measures and repeatedly downplayed the threat of the coronavirus as the epidemic in his country became the second-worst in the world, said Tuesday that he, too, had been infected.
Critics at home and abroad have called Mr. Bolsonaro’s handling of the pandemic cavalier and reckless, allowing the virus to surge across Brazil, Latin America’s largest nation. At one point he dismissed it as “a measly cold,” and he has refused to wear a mask. Whether he continue to downplay the virus now that he is infected is unknown.
Just like President Trump, Bolsonaro has shunned masks, attended mass rallies of his supporters, insisted that the virus poses no threat to healthy people. The manner and his approach to his treatment will be the final test of his will and position… After all, this is no longer a “Hoost or fake news..” It just got real ..
